A Great Day with GREAT Friends

Today was a great day because I got to sew with my quilting group. Lynn made a yummy lunch of homemade Fiesta soup and Eve brought an apple pie down from Kohnen's bakery in Tehachapi,so we were all set in the food department. We had a great day sewing and catching up on what's been going on with everyone. Next time I have to remember to bring my camera so I can snap some pictures of show and tell. Lynn and Nancy M. had each made a table runner from an Eleanor Burns pattern that features a maple leaf. Eve was working on some holiday tea towels from one of Nancy Halvorsen's books. I managed to finish two blocks for my new BOM, Ode to The Blue and Grey, which if all goes as planned, will be ready to go in January 2011.

Here's the first block.

I'm not really sure I like this second block. The large paisley half-square triangles in the four corners seem to get lost. I may go back and re-work this block, but I'll wait until I get a few more blocks done. That way I can see how the blocks work together.

Merry Christmas Nancy!

Hope you enjoy your holidays. I like your blocks and can see what you're saying about the second block. You will know better after you see how they play together.
Happy designing!

big hugzzzzz

Love your blocks, Nancy. What if you turned the corner blocks 180 degrees on the second block?? Maybe that would be more pleasing to the eye. Any way, the fabric is wonderful -
